Although the lakes are stocked with a variety of trout - rainbows, golden, browns, blues and tigers - we only saw rainbows in our bags but with a total of 18 between us it was a good day out. The biggest rainbow was landed from Kingfisher Lake by John Bright (we saw the kingfisher several times by the way!). At 3lb 4.5oz John is the winner of the competition and is now currently leading the 'Traveller's Trophy' race for the biggest trout taken on an away day. There is a long way to go until November, John!
Here are the results:
John 2 trout best 3lb 4.5oz, Bob 3 trout best 2lb 6oz, Pat 2lb 4oz & 2lb 2oz, Kelvin 2lb 6oz & 2lb 0oz, PeteP 3lb 0oz & 2lb 20z, Stuart 2lb 2oz & 1lb 8oz, PeterM 2lb 10oz & 2lb 8oz, TonyV 2lb 4oz, TonyH 1lb 12oz & Kevin 1lb 10oz. David, Anthony, Karen & Jay put in nil returns.
